*This scholarship is part funded by the Welsh Government's European Social Fund (ESF) convergence programme for West Wales and the Valleys.*
PhD scholarship for UK or EU applicants in the field of: Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science
Subject study: Parallel computing for advanced engineering simulations
Start date: April 2018
The project will research and develop a framework where the latest massively parallel computing engines (GPU's/Co-processors) and multi-core CPUs are utilised within an engineering simulation system to accelerate targeted areas of the computational model. The nature of the PhD research work is multidisciplinary, involving mathematics, computer science and engineering applications in material, manufacturing and energy sectors. The PhD project is open ended with a large degree of freedom to explore further into several related directions in parallel computing, computer simulation, data analysis, and engineering applications. The project is collaborative between a large academic research team and a leading industrial partner.
The scholarship provides 3 years of funding with a 6 month period to complete the thesis. The achievement of a postgraduate skills development award, PSDA, is compulsory for each KESS II scholar and is based on a 60 credit award.
